No one said repeating would be easy.

And let’s face it. The Ticats weren’t interested in repeating a Grey Cup finalist season from a year ago. They wanted and still want to take things one step further.

But building on the success of last year’s Grey Cup run has run into one obstacle after another and we’re not even talking about the stadium woes that have left the Ticats homeless for at least a half season longer than they originally expected.

No, from injuries to errors of youth, the Ticats have managed to put themselves in a rather large hole if they are to build on last year’s success.

The injuries are pretty much out of the team’s hands. Sure, developing proper warmups and all can, and do, help, but whether C.J. Gable winds up in the walking boot he’s currently fashioning after a B.C. defender tackles him really is more about fate than it is prevention.
